A friend of mine sent this message to me.. so I thought I would pass it along

I hope you enjoy this litte bit of justice, and guess what this could  
havehappened to anyone black or white.

Okay, everyone....a true story of justice in the good old U.S. of A.
Thought y'all might enjoy this; if nothing else, it shows internet
justice, if it can be called that.

My daughter & I had just finished a salad at Neiman-Marcus Cafe in
Dallas & decided to have a small dessert.  Because our family are
such cookie lovers, we decided to try the "Neiman-Marcus Cookie". It
was  so excellent that I asked if they would give me the recipe and
they said with a small frown, "I'm afraid not."  Well, I said, would
you let me buy the recipe? With a cute smile, she said, "Yes."  I
asked how much, and she responded, "Two fifty." I said with aproval,
just add it to my tab.

Thirty days later, I received my VISA statement from Neiman-Marcus
and it was $285.00.  I looked again and I remembered I had only
spent $9.95 for two salads and about $20.00 for a scarf.  As I
glanced at the bottom of the statement, it said, "Cookie Recipe -
$250.00." Boy, was I upset!! I called Neiman's Accounting Dept. and
told them the waitress said it was "two-fifty," and I did not realize
she meant $250.00 for a cookie recipe.

I asked them to take back the recipe and reduce my bill and they
said they were sorry, but because all the recipes were this expensive
so not just everyone could duplicate any of our bakery recipes....the
bill would stand.

I waited, thinking of how I could get even or even try and get any
of my money back.

I just said, "Okay, you folks got my $250.00 and now I'm going to
have $250.00 worth of fun." I told her that I was going to see to it
that every cookie lover will have a $250.00 cookie recipe from
Neiman-Marcus for nothing. She replied, "I wish you wouldn't do
this." I said, "I'm sorry but this is the only way I feel I could
get even," and I will.

So, here it is, and please pass it to someone else or run a few
copies....I paid for it; now you can have it for free.

(Recipe may be halved.):

2  cups butter                          4  cups flour
2  tsp. soda                           2  cups sugar
5  cups blended oatmeal**         24 oz. chocolate chips
2  cups brown sugar                      1  tsp. salt
1  8 oz. Hershey Bar (grated)      4  eggs
2  tsp. baking powder                  3 cups chopped nuts (your choice)
2  tsp. vanilla

** measure oatmeal and blend in a blender to a fine powder. Cream the
butter and both sugars.  Add eggs and vanilla; mix together with
flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and soda.
Add chocolate chips, Hershey Bar and nuts.  Roll into balls and place
two inches apart on a cookie sheet.  Bake for 10 minutes at 375
degrees.  Makes 112 cookies.

Have fun!!!  This is not a joke --- this is a true story..
That's it. Please, pass it along to everyone you know, single
people, mailing lists, etc.....
